I felt like drawing a dwarf. And I thought I would do more than just doodle, so I decided to change this Norman Rockwell painting into a dwarf. Instead of a dog, there’s a dragon-like thing. Instead of a newspaper, he has a treasure map, and instead of a satchel he has a bag of treasure. Oh, and of course he’s cooking raw meat instead of sausages. Good ol’ dwarfs! If I have time later I may paint it as well.
I’ve been in the mood to do something Cthulhu-esque recently. That, and I’ve been in the mood to resume doing some fantasy pieces too. Anyway, this is supposed to be an octopus-woman-creature doing the bidding of her octopus master. There’s no real story behind it, other than wanting to draw octopuses.
It’s been a long time since I made a new chicken. Too long, in fact. So it was necessary that one of my first paintings since quitting must be a chicken. Actually, I painted this last week but it’s taken this long to dry. I’m entering it into an art content this weekend, so I was able to finish it just in time. Anyway, here is the next in the Chickens of the World series: Hanamachi (The Geisha).
